If you like it, save it!

Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place.

Got it!

If you like something…

Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like.

Got it!

Remember when Mom sent you care packages? My own would explode onto my college dorm floor, spilling out candy corn, DVDs of romcoms, and salty snacks that necessitated a phone call to friends for "help" finishing everything. It's like she knew how badly I needed to eat candy while watching Cameron Diaz swap houses with Kate Winslet.
